Frederikshavn has its own very special atmosphere thanks to its maritime history, idyllic setting, and the ferries plying back and forth to Sweden, Norway and Læsø. The vast number of visitors to the town (around five million a year) have nurtured a shopping mecca, including one of the country’s longest pedestrian streets. Nature also plays a role, with a wealth of activities and things to do on land and sea.
World’s most northerly palm beach
It all started in 2004 with 30 palm trees. There are now 100 in the white sand of Denmark’s most exotic beach. On a summer’s day, when the sun beams down from a cloudless sky, you could almost think you were in the Caribbean. But this is the Kattegat and Denmark at their very best.
